Personal bio
He received a BS degree in materials science and a PhD in electronics engineering from Waseda University and the University of Tokyo, respectively. In 1962, he joined Toshiba R&D working mainly on Si based CMOS devices and technology until the mid 80â??s, including developments of the world first 1MCMOS DRAM, 16 bit SOS processor technology, MNOS nonvolatile memory. His early discovery of electron spin resonance Center, PB,from silicon-silicon dioxide has been recognized as the origin of the fast interface states. In 1986 he joined Hewlett-Packard as the director of the Silicon Process Lab, and led CMOS R&D for HP-PARISC processors, followed by the founding director of HP ULSI Research Laboratory. In 1995 he joined Texas Instruments Inc, as Senior Vice President and Director of R&D in which he established new R&D model and Kilby Center for TIâ??s IC technology R&D. In 2002 he switched from industry to academia as a faculty member of Stanford University, where he serves as a professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering (research) and also in the Department of Material Science and Engineering. He also serves as the director of the Stanford Nanofabrication Facility of National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network of the United States and director of research of the Center for Integrated Systems. Honours Prof. Nishi is IEEE Fellow, and received numerous awards, including 1995 Jack Morton Award, 2002 Robert Noyce Medal, 2006 PICMET Technology Mnagement Leadership Award, 2008 SEMI North America Lifetime Achievements Award. He is one of the founding members of VLSI Symposia. He serves as visiting professor of Waseda University, Tsinghua University, Peking University, International Advisory Committee member of Solid-State Devices and Materials Conference, Executive Committee member of IEEE VLSI Symposium, and also technical advisory board of several companies. During the period of 1995â??2002, he served as a board member of the SRC and the International Sematech, the NNI panel, the MARCO governing council, and other boards. Currently, he serves as an affiliated member of the Science Council of Japan and a member of the International Scientific Advisory Board of the Central European Institute of Technology (CEITEC). Lately he is elected as professor for the Chair of Excellence, Nanoscience Foundation, France.
